At the 2013 NAMM Show, AIR Music Technology introduced Vacuum Pro Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer.
Vacuum Pro is described as a ‘polyphonic analog tube synthesizer’. It descends from the original monophonic Vacuum, developed by AIR as part of the Pro Tools Creative Collection from Avid.
The new Vacuum Pro is polyphonic, offering up to 160 oscillators plus substantial improvements in both horsepower and features.
Vacuum Pro Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer
The Vacuum part of the name Vacuum Pro relates to the six tube circuits that lend a particularly ‘analog’ flavor to each of the main synthesis modules—oscillators, filters, mixer, etc. Modulation effects, delay, and a classic arpeggiator add motion and depth to the sound.
Vacuum Pro sounds are created using one or two parts. When creating parts, the Smart Sound Randomizer allows new values to be created instantly for any or all selected modules. This makes it easy to keep an interesting oscillator sound, for example, while quickly trying out new filter settings. In addition, the Parts Lock feature allows the current settings of any modules (both parts) to be retained when changing sounds, providing a fast way to combine elements from different patches.
Vacuum Pro Polyphonic Analog Tube Synthesizer is for 32- or 64- bit Mac or Windows systems, AAX, VST, AU, and RTAS formats. Pricing is TBA.
